Gain lovers

We like omelette but condemn egg shell breaking.

Our hero is Mandela but we want him without the suffering on Robben Island.

Marcus Garvey, Steve Biko, Che, Castro……all our heroes but we condemn any and all who want to walk the rough road they chose to trudge,

We must consider them fools, raving lunatics

Since knowing the consequences of the choices they were making and still made them,

their insanity brought them pains

and give us the gains we now sip in our tall cocktail glasses


Development and policy analyst with a strong interest in the arts and inclusive social change. Dabbles occasionally into poetry and literary criticism!
